[linux-lvm] Implementation questions

Thanks for the responses.  I didn't properly explain the problem properly.
The real problem is getting the LVM installed on to /dev/md0 where /dev/md0
is /dev/hda1 and /dev/hdc1.  I'm still trying to get the first (test) box up
and going properly.

The wishlist
- make the 2 x 20GB drives into /dev/hd[ac]1 partitioned to use the whole
- make /dev/md0 (RAID1) contain both disks
- use pvcreate /dev/md0
- use vgcreate rootvg /dev/md0
- lvcreate ...
- mkfs.xfs /dev/rootvg/...

I don't mind if the setup procedure for the first (test) machine is dodgy
and convoluted, as pointed out I should be able to use Ghost or some other
method to roll the other machines out after.
